AIMS The optimal revascularization strategy in patients with symptomatic multivessel coronary artery disease (CAD) and previous coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) remains unknown. METHODS AND RESULTS We evaluated all patients with previous CABG undergoing isolated, non-emergency multivessel revascularization between 1 January 1995 and 31 December 2000. The analysis concentrated on the independent predictors of the revascularization method, as well as on long-term mortality and its… CONTINUE READING
